Teenage Climate Activist Greta Thunberg Nominated for 2020 Nobel Peace Prize

Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate activist who has driven the conversation about the “climate crisis,” has another accolade to add to her list of accomplishments after she was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this week.

Thunberg was nominated by Swiss lawmakers Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling. In a statement on Monday, the pair said that Thunberg has “has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis” and “action for reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace.”

The young activist was also nominated for the prize in 2019 and was considered among the favorites last year. The Nobel Committee instead chose Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed Ali for “his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation, and in particular for his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighboring Eritrea.”

While she was passed over for the Nobel in 2019, Thunberg was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year. That honor angered President Donald Trump who complained that Time’s decision to honor Thunberg was “so ridiculous,” adding that “Greta must work on her anger management problem.”

Trump was Time’s Person of the Year in 2016 and seems to have a fixation with being recognized by Time Magazine. He even had a fake issue of Time Magazine with his face on the cover hanging in one of his golf courses.

The president has also lusted over the Nobel Peace Prize. At one point, he claimed that Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe had nominated him for the prize.

Trump recently appeared to take a shot at Thunberg during a speech at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, telling the crowd, “To embrace the possibilities of tomorrow, we must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse.”

Responses

  1. The Nobel Peace Prize has lost all meaning. They nominated Yassir Arafat (a terrorist) and Jimmy Carter (for what?) and Barack Obama before he had ever taken office as president. He had done nothing noteworthy. The Committee is as nuts as Pelosi!

  2. What a great scam!!! Which is why the left loves it! They dupe their flock into spending sh!tloads of money now in the hopes that a minuscule change will happen 50+ years from now. By then, if they’re wrong, the ones responsible are dead and by then, the politicians are on to another scam!

    BTW,

    1) from 1940 to into the 1970’s the temperature of the earth cooled about 0.5’ C. CO2 levels increased continuously throughout that time. So, for about 1/3 of the previous century the global temperatures were dropping while CO2 levels increased.

    2) Another fun fact is that that the Earth has been warming since the 1600’s (little ice age). So the Earth was warming well before the industrial revolution started and before CO2 increases could be attributed to humans.

    3) There has been NO measurable temperature increases since 1990.

    4) Government records have been altered in 2012 to lower recorded temperatures prior to 1940 downward to hide the 20th century decline. Temperatures were altered downward again in 2014 to further emphasize warming in later years. Who was President then?

    Just heard a short while ago that Commie Bernie has a "fix' for the climate change hoax. He is proposing a $16 TRILLION plan to be implemented when he is elected. No details where he plans to find that kind of money since the IRS takes in only $4 TRILLION per year for ALL of the Government's expenses. Don't think the Fascist's money tree orchard is producing as yet.

    And it looks like the uneducated kiddie from Sweden will be getting one of those participation trophies like the Kenyan did for something he didn't do..

    1. Money is no object when you’re spending other people’s money. Making promises that can’t be kept is what Democrats are all about.

  4. It shows what a joke Nobel has become – anything against America

  5. An Alex Thomas written piece again. He evidently knows what President Trump thinks….again. Lusted? Come on IJR. We all know about his ego and obviously don’t care.
    Can not help but wonder who gave this child her first platform. What has her attention and speech making changed? Enough!!!

    1. “Can not help but wonder who gave this child her first platformn” Cherl

      You are obviously uninformed about her.
